The National Opera Chorus sings opera songs in front of the building of Ministry of Culture and Tourism in Seoul on March 25.


The performance was organized to protest the decision of the Korea National Opera to dissolve the Chorus. The Korea National Opera informed them of their firing en masse on January 8. The members of National Opera Chorus have fought against that decision.


The Chorus gathered signatures of more than 13 thousand people supporting the fighting against the decision of dissolution, including the endorsement from the members of France‘s National Opera.
